The simple fact is we have had 2 seasons now of some really strange bad luck. Our WR and CB have been decimated 2 years in a row, and in today's game those are the positions that you most need. Last year it was more CB, this year it is more the WR (Greg Ward was our #1.... think about that).
I can't really evaluate Wentz if he is throwing to guys that shouldnt be in the league (sorry Greg, love watching the effort, but he isnt a #1 WR, or even a #4).
Pederson's play calling is in the same boat. How do you call plays when the other team is just stacking the line and daring you to throw the ball deep. Our last 50+ completion went to DJax in week 1. No one is afraid of this team deep, we just a) dont have the guys b)are not even trying
Certainly there is a problem with recent draft picks, but once again it is hard to evaluate anything on the offense on this team when we are so handicapped. Is Goeddert a good or great TE? Who knows when they can guard him so close without fear. Is Dillard a good player? Hard to evaluate rookie OL, they need a year or two.
This was a weird year. Quietly the team actually gave up a while ago by releasing players like Fort and Sendajo, not because they were not playing well, but because keeping them cost us picks and there was no reason to lose the pick to hold on to them.
I am not looking forward to this offseason, we just have so many holes and I doubt they can all be filled. One could argue that Orcega-Whiteside is the only WR to keep, we need at least 4 and 2 should be starters. DJax might come back, we might be stuck with Jeffries, but honestly we can't really count on either to even take the field.
They really might need to substantially rework some of the DL contracts. FCox is not anywhere near the player we are paying him to be. Curry is probably gone again I assume (shame, great guy who really just wants to play for the Eagles and win, I think he would do it for $1). Losing Malik Jackson really screwed things up early.
